SpoilerCelebrity restaurateur David Chang got help from Jimmy, his friend Alan Yang, and phone-a-friend Mina Kimes from ESPN.
SpoilerKen Jennings would (or should have) known the question Mina Kimes helped on since it was in his Junior Genius Guide for U.S. Presidents:
In the archive I found two hits while I suspect there could be more with different search terms
#5819, aired 2009-12-24 THE WHITE HOUSE $2000: When electric lights were installed in 1891, this pres., afraid of being shocked, wouldn't operate the switches
#4230, aired 2003-01-10 THE WHITE HOUSE $400: The wife of President Benjamin Harrison had this installed in the White House, but was afraid to turn it on & off!
Before his appearance I was not familiar with David Chang so that must mean he is not an A-lister. Wherever he falls from B to Z I appreciate the nerve or recklessness he demonstrated.
It was too bad ABC had hyped way too much that a celeb won a million, so I knew it was happening some time this season. When I saw a post on the WWTBAM Bored marked with spoilers on Friday, two days before the show aired, I figured it was going to be tonight. In the break before the win, ABC itself could not resist plugging Jimmy Kimmel's show for tomorrow night including a promo for winning Celebrity Millionaire.
As to be expected Jimmy had no idea had to make the big moment more special. A better-trained host and a more-known celebrity could have made it an all-time game show moment. Instead it was fun to see though far from legendary.
Hope Mina is on HQ tomorrow and that her co-hosts talk about her PAF work even if it was all a guess in picking the right guy by chance going for a general area of who might have been in office at the time.
I recall the last player on the original run of Regis (before it became a regular series) got a very simple stack that a stronger player could have run.
She was on today and they discussed it. Even funnier, though, was the alternate-universe version during the outro in which Pablo Torre was the PAF.
